Yeah, 5-3-70 and 4-7-72 are pretty pitiful....bottom of the barrel tapes!

Also the entire Academy of Music March '72 run, one of the big disappointments in taping history.

And these '71 shows are very hard on the ears:

My favorite terrible-sounding show, though, is 5-8-70....if you can listen through the distortion, you know you're a fanatic!

check these out when you're in a tolerant mood... sound quality is marginal,

but they do contain some of the finest versions (so say some of the reviews) of certain songs;
such as The Eleven
(1970-04-24)

and Alligator >Jam (1970-11-06)
